About the Team

Want to help guide strategic and financial decision making for a major business line at a Forbes Cloud 100 company? Then come join the Finance & BizOps (FBOS) team at Gusto! At Gusto, we serve over 100,000 small business customers with our Payroll, Benefits, and HR software platform, affording them peace of mind with these complicated tasks and helping them create great places to work.

The FBOS team provides strategic, operational and financial decision support at the corporate, departmental and product level. The team’s mission is to define and defend the business model while accelerating Gusto’s growth.

As part of this team, you will drive planning, resource allocation and operations for the Employers business segment and Marketing team in this high impact, high responsibility role. You’ll be a relied upon thought partner for our Employers Segment in determining our strategy, product impact sizing, and resourcing of the channel. You’ll gain experience creating and managing financial plans, evaluating investment opportunities, and being a thought partner to operators in scaling the current product portfolio as well as launching new products in the future.

Here’s what you'll do day-to-day:

  • Planning. Build and maintain financial and operational plans, including revenue, cost and headcount targets.
  • Business Analytics & Decision Support. Conduct research, analysis, and business modeling to help leadership make financially sound and strategically aligned decisions that thoughtfully weight opportunities and risk
  • Performance Management. Help continuously improve reporting frameworks and define/track the right KPIs to drive better product and go-to-market decisions with data-informed insights.
  • Execution. A core philosophy of the FBOS team is that we are not here to merely forecast, i.e. try to predict an indeterminate future -- we are here to help make it happen. We roll up our sleeves as partners and pitch in with operators as needed.

**Here's what we're looking for: **

  • Experience. You have 8+ years of relevant work experience in strategic finance, investment banking, consulting, and/or private / growth equity, and with operational SaaS experience. You have a degree in a quantitative field (e.g. Finance, Business, Engineering, Mathematics, etc.)
  • Technical skills. You’re an Excel pro with the superpower to develop insightful financial models and quantitative analysis, paired with strong critical thinking and sound business judgment. You have impactful data visualization skills in Tableau or other BI tools. You can deep dive into large data sets with SQL.
  • Cross-functional partnership. You have the ability to build relationships and work collaboratively in a fast-paced environment and are adept at working with cross functional partners to help them understand how to manage headcount, deploy capital efficiently. You can eloquently distill and communicate complex topics broadly to key stakeholders.
  • **Discipline & Attitude. ** You are a self-starter and have the ability to manage multiple workstreams with multiple stakeholders while hitting deadlines on time sensitive projects. You are proactive and have a positive attitude with a can-do, service-oriented mentality.
  • Location. This role can be based in Denver or SF (upon re-opening of offices)

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $116,000 to $143,000 per year in Denver & most remote locations, and $140,00 to $173,000 per year for San Francisco & New York. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
